Step 1: Shut down your PC completely. Step 2: Turn on the Power button. Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.) Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration". Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
Boot the laptop, and immediately after you see the DELL splash screen, start pressing F8. This will display a startup menu with a few different options. Choose the option that says "Last Known Good Configuration" - this will back out the last update changes that may have caused your problems. Good luck!!
Please use this solution thta I have placed on this forum.
Please follow exactly these steps then you computer should be working again.
I have used the following solution. Restart computer.press f8 then choose option restore computer. choose option open command. type: prompt winsxs (press enter) type: move C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml text.xml (press enter) type: exit and restart computer. Computer should be working again.
good luck. hope it works for you. pieter.
downloads are either being stopped by a firewall or your system cannot update what it needs to because your missing other updates. if you dont have all required updates some others will not install.try automatic updates.download all critical and recommended updates.
Hello! This is a tough one. I've seen this recently and had to just press and hold the power button to shut down. Not good!
I'm assuming you're using Windows of some sort since it shows "Stage 3 of 3" when it does updates during shut down.
What has happened is you downloaded some sort of "fix" from Microsoft
and it's getting stuck while trying to install. I've had this happen
and have never found a good solution for it.
1. Turn you computer off. 2. Turn your computer on 3. As soon as the power comes on, start pressing F8 repeatedly. 4. When you get a black and white menu, use your arrow keys to move up and down, select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press enter.
What the solution I've provided does is revert your computers software to a point in the past, hopefully just before you received the screwy update.
This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.
no computer is trash when you are dealing with a software issue.
boot up and tap on the f8 key... when you get to that screen... choose safe mode... if it successfully boots.... go to start menu... and restart again... it should boot... if it wants to do the update let it.... if still nothing.... f8 again and choose last known good configuration
Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update.
If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.
